Pastor Michael Knight and Pastor Warren Beemer have heard countless stories from tornado victims. These two pastors, in addition to thousands of other volunteers, are helping to distribute donations to those who need it most right now, survivors of violent tornadoes. More than $100,000 in donations has arrived and Pastors Knight and Beemer are aiding in setting up multiple locations to distribute items in need. Teams are working around the clock to establish donation centers in cities such as Mayfield, Dawson Springs, Bremen, and Bowling Green in Kentucky. There, volunteers have handed out essential items to those hardest hit by the tornadoes. WeatherNation was able to catch up with these two (aforementioned) pastors. Note, the cell service is spotty and limited in these hard hit areas. That's why the video may appear blurry at times. We edited out some delays from the interview in order to sustain momentum in the story: https://youtu.be/7nDdskKuYgA The tornadoes occurred within a rare, and violent, outbreak of severe weather on December 10th and 11th. At least 77 people have died in the state of Kentucky, with at least another dozen deaths in other nearby, adjacent states. The tornadoes have been rated as violent, with winds nearing 200 miles per hour. WeatherNation will continue to follow the developing story in the aftermath of these deadly tornadoes. We encourage you to think about donating, and we appreciate any donations you're able to afford.
